Welcome to the season of warm colors and gourd-inspired decorations adorning the halls and walls everywhere you go. Fall is a pumpkin’s favorite season, and if you’re a savvy beauty connoisseur, this may be your favorite season, too.
Pumpkins offer an enormity of benefits. Besides boasting of a beautiful color that simply can’t be denied, these pieces of garden art can help you look like a goddess and fulfill your body’s need for vital nutrients. The vibrant color they sport is indicative of high levels of beta-carotene, which is an anti-oxidant your body converts into Vitamin A when you consume it.
Ready to get your pumpkin on? Consider integrating these harvest-inspired beauty products into your pre- and post-bedtime schedules:
Pumpkin Peels. Pumpkins contain enzymes that are great for exfoliation while feeding the skin vital vitamins and nutrients that are necessary to keep it looking healthy and vibrant. The Vitamin A and beta-carotene contained in pumpkins helps to stimulate circulation and promote healing. Sensitive and acne-prone skin often do well with pumpkin peels versus chemical alternatives, as it tends to have a more gentle approach.
Pumpkin Serum. Besides smelling amazing, pumpkin serum can deliver great benefits to your skin. Pumpkin seeds have been shown to help diminish wrinkles and fine lines because they’re filled packed with Omegas 3 and 6. When paired with rose hip, pumpkin serum arms your skin with cellular regeneration and intensive repair.
Pumpkin Masks. Alpha hydroxy acids and other amazing enzymes help to increase skin cell turnover, which, in turn, helps to smooth and brighten skin as your body produces brand new cells. Collagen-boosters help fight the signs of aging and are found in Vitamins A and C, both of which are essential elements of pumpkin-oriented face masks. Looking for a homemade pumpkin facemask?
